Title: Special Design Aspects of Adhesive Bonding Plates

Abstract:Research on the design of adhesive bonding plates for strengthening reinforced concrete structural elements is presented in this paper. Different design aspects are covered, including increase of bending strength, calculation of anchoring length of epoxy bonded steel plates, temperature resistance, dowel action, and strengthening of two-way slabs taking into account orthotropic behavior of strengthened slabs. A brief overview of theoretical principles is given. The results of a large experimental program are evaluated according to the theoretical principles and are translated into practical engineering design procedures. The design procedure for strengthening two-way slabs is explained in a practical example.
